We can hardly imagine how many transportation modes are now in existence. It is life that motivates the advent of new vehicles. Our current progress in science and technology provides a basis for new forms of transportation. We may suppose that the immediate decades will see new modes of transportation, and a pipedream of today may predominate in the future. Surface transportation will see superspeed trains with magnetic and air suspension. Air traffic will be dominated by large jet aircraft, primarily airbuses, and airships will also find numerous applications. For cross water routes hydrofoils, hovercraft, and ground-effect machines will be used whose time-tables and navigation will be controlled from space. The book discusses the development of a number of promising vehicles, such as fast wheelless trains, and shows the perspectives of their advancement. The material of the book is based on a great deal of facts concerning the latest achievements in the field. The book is intended for those who are interested in the history of transportation, new technical ideas, and the prospects of transportation technology.
